Have you heard about the “War on Men?”† Yes, the one that is threatening male dominance by allowing women to *gasp* hold jobs outside the house, and even let girls play sports at school?
If you think that there might be a systematic effort to try and force females back into traditional roles where they are ruled by their male counterparts and kept in their homes to tend the family, you are probably right.† But that’s for your own good, as one Minnesotan letter writer opines in the Fargo Forum:
It is their strategy to attack ordinary men as the heads of their families and other traditional institutions. They do this by pushing women out of their homes and into the workforce by creating an economy that requires both parents to work. Also, by pushing them into jobs traditionally reserved for men: soldier, police officer, firefighter, physician, truck driver, etc. And by pushing schoolgirls into highly competitive varsity athletics traditionally reserved for boys, just to name a few. God created us male and female. They are saying there is no male and female.
It is all just to blur the distinction between men and women. Having destroyed the role of ordinary men as leaders, they rush in to fill the void. Any wife who is contentious with her husbandís leadership, any woman who takes a manís pulpit, or seeks employment that has been traditionally reserved for men, has played into the elitistsí hands.
His advice?† Fight the evil folk who are trying to take women out of their rightful role of wife, mother, and…cheerleader.
Well, at least he’s not kicking girls out of school all together, right?
As for Mr. Ross’s “good men lead at home” line, well, it’s hard to imagine a strong family leader who turns out a child who thinks it’s fun to set turtles on fire and post the video.† Then again, Ross explains that away, too, with, “We and the other parents involved love our sons far more than these people love their stupid turtles and we believe they will turn out just fine.”
I guess when you believe in Biblical law as the guide to every day life, man has dominion over the animals and the women alike.
